URW Game Encyclopedia description
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the key) describes greaves and shin guards thusly:
A piece of armour for the legs. Their primary purpose is to protect the outer bone in the calf from attack. The bone in the calf is very close to the skin, and is therefore extremely vulnerable to just about any kind of attack. Furthermore, a serious injury on the shin may result in that leg being rendered useless, greatly hampering one's ability to maneuver in any way.
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by thekey) describes leather thusly:
In clothing leather is used mainly for shoes, boots and belts. It's also used to complete some other garment for example with bands and thongs. More commonly leather is used in making of numerous pieces of equipment.
